Description

Written for college and university students, this simple guide to project tools and techniques is an ideal introduction to the ‘Work Based Project’. Dr Pickerden invites the reader to use their own project idea as an example as they work through the various steps to a successful project. Following these steps, and working through the accompanying examples and exercises, should help the student project manager to avoid many of the usual pitfalls, and emerge with a successful project and a decent mark for the course assignment.
